Five Remanded For Alleged N3.9m Fake Alert In Abuja


No fewer than five persons were on Friday charged for issuing a false N3.93 million bank alert to a construction company.

Ahmed Sarki, Nura Usman, Jidda Lawa, Safiya Ibrahim, and the Mohammed Family, all from Jabi in Abuja, were charged at the Chief Magistrates’ Court in Wuse Zone II, Abuja, for criminal conspiracy, an attempt to conduct an offence, criminal breach of trust, and cheating.

However, the defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge brought against them.

The Prosecutor, Faith Sunday, told the court that the complainant, Danjuma Godwina of Mabushi, reported the incident to the Mabushi Police Station in Abuja.

She claimed that the defendants plotted and formed a construction company under the pretense of purchasing stone-coated tiles.

She stated that after purchasing the tiles, the defendants made a fraudulent transfer of funds to the company’s account.

The prosecution counsel stated that police investigations confirmed that the accused had committed the offense.

She said the offence violated Sections 97 and 95 of the Penal Code.

The Judge, Chukwuemeka Nweke, admitted the defendants to bail in the sum of N1 million each, with one surety in the same amount.

He adjourned the case for a hearing on July 2.
